Hormone Replacement Therapy

  1. Hormones are the way in which our body tissues communicate with and regulate their actions. As we age, our bodies can lose the ability to produce, release, or respond to hormones appropriately. We believe working to rebalance our hormone systems is an effective, efficient, and logical medical intervention, and that it makes far more sense to utilize the very substances our bodies do before turning to pharmaceuticals to achieve health. As an alternative to the more traditional hormone replacement therapy, we offer Hormone Pellet Therapy. Pellets release a steady flow of hormones in the body unlike topical, oral, or injectable hormones which can fluctuate between doses. Treatment doesn’t rely on the patient’s ability to inject themselves regularly but is instead done in the office in a quick 15 to 20-minute procedure 2 to 4 times a year. The pellets we use are bio-identical which means they have the same chemical structure as the hormones our body already makes. This allows the hormone to be well accepted by the body, decreasing side effects or risks like those of non-bio-identical hormones.
